Coupon clipping

The stores are full of Halloween decorations and candy. As you go on the hunt for your Halloween trick and treaters each week, you will see a different candy deal. Starting this week, there are several candy sales that will have good prices and matching up with coupons.

Just a few hints when shopping with candy coupons. Make sure you pick the correct packaging that matches the coupon. One of the common mistakes a new couponer makes is not reading the fine print and limitations on the coupons versus the candy packaging. The coupons verbiage ranges from “individual bars,” to “fun size” or “big bag,” to candy in “large bags.” With the next several weeks, you will have a variety of several different coupons. One coupon example can state “stand-up bag” or your coupon will show “miniature assortment.” Additionally, this month you will see coupons that state “fall harvest” or “halloween candy” on the package and coupon.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan. This is the 40th week of the year, concurrently; you would place $40.00 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $820.00 towards your year-end goal of $1,378.00.
